Blancpain, seated in Le Brassus, Switzerland, is the oldest watch brand in the world. When it constructed its first tourbillon, the company decided to take some risks and bring some innovations into the construction that would make it stand out from other tourbillons. In this exclusive video, we will explain what those innovations are.
IBG Worldwide is a video platform dedicated to demonstrating how the finest timepieces are really made. It hosts our documentaries that educate collectors in the many techniques used in the creation of sophisticated mechanical watches. This is an English-language video channel that no individual watch brand could create by itself.
Didn’t Blancpain go out of business for some years? And also stop all mechanical watch production in favour of quartz? I’ve always thought that saying they are the oldest watch manufactureis a bit of a cheat, really, because of this.
